The 15th edition of the International Coral Reef Symposium (ICRS), held every four years, will take place at MESSE BREMEN from 3 to 8 July. This is the world’s leading interdisciplinary conference on the science, management and conservation of coral reefs. The organisational team of the University of Bremen around Prof. Christian Wild expects more than 1,000 scientists from over 90 countries. Their primary goal is to protect the world’s highly endangered reefs from further destruction.
The conference was opened on Monday, 4 July, among others by the Federal Environment Minister Steffi Lemke, by Professor Andréa Grottoli, President of the International Coral Reef Society, and by Bremen’s Mayor Andreas Bovenschulte. Prince Albert II of Monaco, who is particularly committed to the protection of the oceans with the foundation named after him, was welcomed as a special guest of honour.
